I took this shot as a joke because my wife and I thought it would be funny. It ended up the featured article on Jalopnik for an entire day. Proof that I actually rigged it! --> http://oneninety8.com …e-ways-to-capture-my-son/ (external link)

That was a great idea, & a nice job of executing it. Make a nice print for his wall!

I agree. The part where I disagree is the fact that you can find countless stories on the web about the Avenger F1000 failing, I myself have had 3 of the 6 I have purchased fail (over time). However, you'd be hard-pressed to find a single incident of a Woods cup failing.

To me, this speaks volumes, and was enough by itself to turn me away from the Avenger forever.

I've had 2 woods fail. HTH.


But I do agree that woods are better ;)

In what way did they fail, did they fail permanently or was it just that they "popped off"?

But let us speak plainly George, you are SUPER hard on equipment. You are the only customer I have ever had to have such things happen...in 3.5 years. And that's not the only thing that has happend to you, right? So, I think it's safe to say that this is user-induced failure, not product failure.

No disrespect, you're a professional, but you're ultra hard on equipment.

Neither. His broke the threaded-spud welds at the base, causing them to turn instead of stay straight. Probably a result of over-tightening :cool:.

George is resourceful though, he fixed them himself :)

They popped off when using my old ali rig on the side of the car once. The woods are also a much softer rubber so one chipped the outer ring seal and lost the ability to stick to anything. I've also then had the top screw mounts come loose on a few of them. None of it is the end of the world, but I do now bring two spare suction cups with me on each shoot just to be safe

anyone used one of these instead of a magic arm? supposedly has a higher capacity, lower weight, and about the same cost:
